    Egg or Rock?

    Hello everyone, I found yall on google while trying to get info about this interesting rock I found in the Fossile Coast area of Oregon a few months ago. Photos are attached and here is some info about it... Found in flowing water at the extended base of a 300 foot waterfall,. Its the tallest in the state but I forgot its name. The surrounding rock was all black and dark shades of earth., mostly basalt. My find was the only stone of a light color i saw in vicinity, both in the water and on the trail. The surface is smooth, certainly been in water a loooong t

    Turtle egg

    I've been finding what I believe are eggs of prehistoric animals mainly turtles or tortoises. I've been told they are rocks so I decided to sand one down and discovered what looks to be a turtle inside. I'm I have not been able to find others with turtles inside but realize they didn't hatch for a reason either they weren't fertilized or they were or died before they were hatched. Alsoi am currently homeless and do not have a lot of resources at my disposal (besides time) or the knowledge of what I'm doing. The larger egg has a brown leathery patch covering approx a quarter of the egg.

    Not sure if egg or not...

    Hello all, I joined because I've always been fascinated by fossils, but also because I figured this might be a good place to ask this question: could this be a fossilized egg? It called to me to pick it up out of millions of rocks and stones on a beach in Brighton, UK over 25 years ago, and I just unearthed it again from a box of curios - I've always wondered what it may be, as it's got a surface I've never come across in my travels. I do have access to a fossil park I can take it to have analyzed, but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas. Fossil, or simply a neat rock? It is about 3" long an
  6. I have just come across some newly made fake dinosaur eggs from Ganzhou, China. Ganzhou has a large number of dinosaur eggs dug out from development sites but recently some people are producing fake eggs and sell them at a high price with real eggs from Ganzhou. Take a look of the fake eggs.

    Ok..I have to ask...egg?

    Hi Everyone, I have had this piece for about a year now. Every now and then I pick it up and take another good look. I know it might not be an egg but I need to at least ask the question. If anything I can add it to my outside rock collection and be done with it. Found NSR, Delta County, TX. I have read the Egg topics here. There is still texture on the "shell" even with it being in the river rolling around. Thanks in advance for you time and knowledge.

    Are these fossils?

    A friend found these two items in Northwest Arkansas/SW Missouri in a stream bed. Wondering what they might be. and second item similar size without scale, sorry. Thanks for any comments.

    A fat egg - GangZhou

    Hello, Does anyone know what this egg is from? It looks fatter and less elongated than the oviraptor eggs, but isn't as round as Hadrosaur eggs. Quite unusual. The shell looks different too, not as speckled as the oviraptor eggs. It's from GangZhou, Nanxiong Formation.

    ID'ing a potential fossil

    Hello there everyone! I found this site while looking for resources to ID what my wife suspects is a fossil. We acquired it cleaning out a house that was bought 'as-is' by a relative. - it was on a brick fireplace with some other interesting rocks including a huge piece of obsidian. She swears it looks like a dinosaur egg. I don't see it but agreed to look into it. It's about 10 inches long by 5 inches thick at the thickest point and shaped kinda like a football. Thanks very much for your time and expertise.

    Seed, egg or nut

    I was guessing some sort of accreation but when a friend dropped it I became confused. Any help greatly appreciated. Found on friends property in the foothills of Denver, CO. USA near the Fossil Trace GG (yes they actually have fossils imbedded in cliffs and other features on the golf course.) P.S. I ordered a centimeter graph pad and hopefully this will be last "improper" post
  12. I recently got offered a nest of 3 oviraptor eggs in what I think is great condition. I trust the source I’m getting it from but I wanted to run it by you guys to double check that they’re authentic. let me know what you think!

    Oviraptor eggs

    The Oviraptor eggs I previously posted about finally got here! These were pretty expensive so I just wanted to see what you guys think about them and double check they’re authentic now that I have some better photos. I also included a few close up pictures I took. If you need any other pics or info let me know Weight: 9 lb 6.5 oz (426 g)

    Egg or tooth?

    Hello! I found this very odd fossil while scratching on Jebel Hafeet, Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. I came across it while brushing sand off of a layer of compacted sand. The fossils are eocene in age. I have found many urchins in the same location (including Schizaster and Echinolampas ovalis?). At first I thought it might be a tooth, since the exposed side looked similar to the backside of a crocodile's tooth, but upon further inspection I noticed that the fossil had a thin, asymmetric covering. This made it look more like an unpopped popcorn kernel. I hope you'll be able to
  15. This is a dinosaur egg from Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province of China. Unlike most of the eggs found at Ganzhou, this one has a rather thick shell, though broken. What do you think of its authenticity and if repair (glued?) was done?

    Obx find

    I found this on the beach in north Carolina . It looks eggy to me I’m curious to know if there is anyone who knows what it might be
  17. Hello, What are people's thoughts on these? Three eggs and one partial, plus some bits of shell. Given its poor condition, it looks ok to my eyes, but others know better than me. It's a shame there's not more eggshell coverage--but nests of oviraptors are always out of my price range, so this will be a more budget way for me to get a nest. Also, would these 3 eggs from a different nest that fossilised together? Because most nest fossils I see they are arranged in a sort of circular shape, rather than a big blob, Or is it just that in fossilisation they've been bundled a
  18. I received an offer for a Hadrosaur egg from Nanxiong formation.. and I am confused because the egg looks too perfect... and the crack of the egg looks unnatural to me. Would you share your opinions?
  19. I am told this is an fossiles egg from dendroolitihus sp. It should be real, but who knows?

    What is this??

    What is this???
  21. Hello, I am considering adding a French egg, but would like a look to see that it isn't composited and seems ago. This is labelled as Cairanoolithus, from Herault. Now, most French eggs I see are scrambled like this one. Would calling it an egg be accurate--or is it more, partial eggshell? Given the fact it's broke, I assume this is the remains of a hatched egg? Or is the damage on these done pre-fossilisation? Also--just to confirm that a smooshed egg like this, it's the remains of ONE single egg, and not the shattered remains of two or multiple eggs that are all mashed together
  22. Hi, A couple of months ago I found this egg like fossil/stone. Location: Doesburg Holland, most likely Pleistocene deposit layer, exposed due to sand mining The shape is symmetrical, and tapert, with crack lines, and small cracked bits. The outer surface looks layerd and even thickness. Furthermore, it looks like a bone/teeth line is near the surface/is penetrating it. I've attached a series of photos and a 3d model scan. Reference size is 10 eurocent. What do you guys think? Merci Gr J

    Is this a dinosaur egg? ID help

    Hello guys, I was rock climbing and hiking this last weekend and found this egg. It was partially buried. What caught my attention was the shape and weight. It looks very very light for a normal rock.

    NJ Rock or Fossil

    Hello all, my name is Sam and I'm new on this site. I need help trying to figure out if this rock I just found yesterday is a fossilized egg or nut. Measures 1 3/4" in length and 1 1/2" in height. I think it's a fossilized nut. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!
